Three LG Wink Phones Announced – Stylish Touchscreen Successors To the Cookie

Earlier this week, LG officially announced three new handsets aimed primarily at the youth. These stylish handsets will kick off the new Wink series, which aims to offer touchscreen mobiles phones at a reasonable price.

LG Wink, Wink Style and Wink 3G

The three handsets are -LG T300 Wink, T310 Wink style and T320 Wink 3G. The T300 Wink, which is the cheapest of the lot, sports a 2.4” screen and includes all the standard features including 3.5 mm headphone jack, FM radio, macroSD slot (up to 4GB), and handwriting recognition. Multimedia is not the Wink’s strongest aspect, but the 1.3 megapixel camera with autofocus and the media player (MP3, eAAC+, WAV, MP3, eAAC+, WAV) covers all the basics.

The Wink Style features a 2.8 inch display and will be available in multiple attractive color combinations. It also comes with a slightly better camera (2 MP).

The T320 Wink 3G supports HSDPA, besides packing in some extra goodies including accelerometer and expandable memory up to 16 GB. The Wink Style T310 and the Wink 3G T320 will be available with and without Wi-Fi.

Interestingly enough LG has decided to continue using its Cookie brand name in Europe. So Wink, Wink style and Wink 3G will be known as Cookie, the Cookie Style, and the Cookie 3G in Europe.
